David Gilmour - New Album Named & USA Tour for 2016! David Gilmour and his wife Polly Samson appeared at this years Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas, at Carlow, (South East Ireland) on Saturday (6 June). It was their debut discussion about their songwriting partnership and their first public appearance together. Naturally, discussion mainly centered around the writing process, especially about the Division Bell and On an Island, but probably of most interest was when the discussion turned to David's upcoming new album. Polly said that the theme was 'Carpe Diem' (Seize the day) and David said (after being pressed) that the title of his new album is 'Rattle That Lock'. UPDATE: There's been a lot of confusion as to what actually was played and or performed at this event. We have now had the good fortune to be able to listen to a recording of the whole thing (Not available to the public - sorry) and here's what actually happened. David kicked off by playing a recording of 'High Hopes' and then did a brief acoustic version live of 'Smile'. He then played a recording of a song from 'Rattle That Lock' called 'Whatever It Takes'. A bit later he played a recording of 'Louder Than Words', and then did an acoustic version of 'The Blue'. This was followed by David playing a recording of 'In Any Tongue' from the new album, and last a lovely jazz number called 'The Girl In The Yellow Dress' with Jools Holland on the keys (a recording - also from the new album).With thanks to our AFG Ireland Correspondent David Mcgart.(pictured with David & Polly) and many others. BTW - David confirmed to one of those in attendance that he will be touring the USA in 2016!!! If you want to listen to a couple of short clips that David played, then get your bums over to our good friend The Doctor and listen to his Latest Podcast (Around the 1h 29m mark)

Second Thoughts You may recall we told you a little while back about the new album from Davy O'List. For those that don't know, Davy was a one time stand in for Syd Barrett and former guitarist for The Nice, Roxy Music & The Attack. Davy's new album 'Second Thoughts' was released on March 30 and we have just had a chance to listen to the album in it's entirety. All we can say is WOW! 'Second Thoughts' sees Davy returning to Prog Rock routes, a genre which he helped define in the late 60's during his time in The Nice. It's an epic powerhouse of sound, constantly moving & evolving. It blends rock, funk & jazz together, with an infusion of classical. The decision to keep the album fast paced was due to Davy's urge to create a symphonic styled record, which expands & develops into an ever changing chain of events. Track Bonnie K is a re-imagining of one of Davy's favourite tracks which he produced for The Nice. This new version provides an alternative spin on the well loved original. The final track Halfway To Heaven is a grandiose climax to the album. 'Second Thoughts' is a unique, exciting and memorable album from an eccentric artist who helped shape popular music of the late 60's & early 70's. You can listen to the title track from the album and grab a taste of what's in store. The album is available from Amazon UK | Canada | Germany | Italy | USA
